ZX Spectrum 128k +3

Year made: 1987
Serial number: –
From: UK
Status: all working
Collection: IN COLLECTION
Mods: temporary I have installed inside 3,5″ drive and then Gotek HxC drive

Many mistake in one fact: this is not latest model (made by Amstrad after buying Sinclair company). Actually this is the correct order of black series made by Amstrad under name Sinclair:
– ZX Spectrum 128 +3
– ZX Spectrum 128 +2A (made for Spanish market – still having +3 ROM and place on PCB to connect internal floppy drive)
– ZX Spectrum 128 +2A (still having +3 ROM and place on PCB to connect internal floppy drive)
– ZX Spectrum 128 +2B (cut down mainboard and different ROM)

Interesting that serial numbers were on stickers.
